Rotoworld Mock Draft article

My first article of the year went up over at Rotoworld last night. It talks about a recent mock draft I did while using a “take pitching early” strategy, opposite of what I normally do.

KFFL Expert League

Victor Wang and I are currently participating in a draft for KFFL’s Expert League. After each pick, each team discusses the reasoning behind the pick and it pops up over at KFFL. So far, we have Miguel Cabrera, Chase Utley, and Matt Kemp. Click here to continue keeping tabs on the draft and to read what we and the other owners are saying.
